I would highly recommend Larry handling data recovery issues, especially dealing with the most difficult mechanical failures. Larry helped diagnose the drive's issue over e-mail, until which point I was confident that a head swap from a donor drive may be required. I dropped the drive off to Larry and by the next day I received notification that the data has been recovered. I find that he is passionate about the work that he performs, is honest by having a straight forward pricing structure, and is extremely fast in the service delivery. I would definitely use his services again when the need arises.

Larry took on quite a difficult external hard drive failure that I had been struggling with for months and systematically salvaged all of the data I had on the drive. He kept me updated daily as to what issues he was encountering, possible fixes, and estimated cost of the service each step of the way. After trying multiple approaches it was really looking bleak for the data. However, Larry proved to be more persistent than the problem and was eventually able to recover and transfer everything I thought I had lost. I took the drive to Larry after reading these testimonials and am very pleased that I did.

I spilled water on my computer and given that it was my business computer, I was in total panic. I also hadn't backed up my data in ages!
I brought a newly purchased computer to Larry and over the next couple of days he transferred all of the information from my old computer onto the new one. Relief doesn't begin to explain how I felt. He even put his own personal taxes aside until all of my computer problems were resolved. Now that's dedication!

I am Larry Sabo's biggest fan! I had a 1TB hard drive that had hundreds and hundreds of precious pictures. When it stopped working I had no hope of retrieving those memories! I happened upon Mr. Sabo's ad on kijiji and decided to give him a try, and I am so happy I did! He is efficient, courteous and knowledgable! He responds to emails very promptly and was constantly updating me with what he was doing. All of this was done at a veryyy reasonable price! The man is a miracle worker!! Needless to say, I will be opting for Larry's services for any future hardware or software needs. He has wildly exceeded my expectations!
Thank you Larry!!

If you want a wonderful person to help upgrade, fix, tune-up, troubleshoot for your computer, we just had the best fellow we have ever had. He was formerly a programmer for IBM and knows absolutely everything about computer hardware and software. His fees are also excellent ($60 per hour) and he can even put on a programme for you that allows him to use your computer (when you allow him to) so that he can fix it and save you money with travel costs. He helps people this way who go away on vacation or when he is away as well. He can be reached at Larry@SaboComputer Repairs.com or at (613) 592-8485.

For weeks we have been trying to recover a specialized program from one of our failing PCs. No matter what we tried, the laptop just did not want to boot up. Within 48 hours, Larry Sabo from Sabo Computer Repairs determined that the hard drive had many unreadable sectors and recovered all of the files and data that were not corrupted. Although Windows was damaged beyond repair, Larry did recover the critical program's installer and documents that had not been backed up. We appreciated Larry's perseverance and determination to find a solution where most others would have given up.

I honestly thought my computer's time had come and that the problems were too serious to be fixed. I found Larry's website and called him. He came to our house on short notice, took the time and made a conscientious effort to solve ALL of our very challenging issues. He provided excellent service and cost effective advice to improve the functioning and security of our computer. He is a delightful and very professional "miracle worker" who my husband and I would not hesitate to highly recommend for all your computer needs. Thanks so much, Larry!
Bob Abrams and Jan Clegg, Stittsville
Dealing with Larry Sabo has been an absolute and unexpected delight! After having several "less than satisfactory" experiences with techies at some of the big box stores, I was determined to find someone who would offer great service, fair pricing and speak to me in language I could understand. Larry spent more time on my computer than he charged for (that would NEVER happen at a big box store) gave me a very detailed itemization of the work that was done and did it all in an amazingly short turnaround time. I am completely happy with the service, the pricing and the person!
I'm happy to report the computer is still functioning well three weeks later. You did a great job solving and correcting the mysterious hard drive issues and I would not hesitate to recommend your services to my friends.
S. Moffatt, Ottawa
After rebooting, two hard drives became undetectable in the BIOS and in Windows Vista. Due to known issues with specific Seagate hard drives, Larry suggested that the firmware be repaired then updated. He did so and recovered all of my personal files with same-day turnaround. I will continue to use Larry for all of my computer issues, and highly recommend his services.
Paul Khoury, Ottawa
I have had the pleasure of meeting Larry and have him work on my computer. I don't usually send testimonials but was so pleased to find a person who is honest and does expert work. Thank you!
Pat Flanagan, Kanata
Larry, I am writing to thank you very much for the recent service we received from you. My daughter had spent many hours working on an assignment for school, and when she went to print it, it had somehow been lost on our computer. I called you early the next morning, and you agreed to look at it immediately. Within a few hours, you had recovered her data, lost the night before. You certainly saved the day! You not only recovered her data, but also did a complete clean up of our computer. When I picked it up later that afternoon, you kindly took the time to explain the reasoning the data may have been lost, and how to prevent it from possibly happening again in the future. Your service was fast and efficient and I will certainly recommend you to others.
J. Saunders, Kanata
I am writing to say thank you for fixing my computer and for the excellent service I received. You went to great lengths to repair what I perceived as an unrepairable problem and all was done in a very timely manner. It was a good experience for me and therefore I would not hesitate to give your number to my friends and family. Once again, a big thanks.
B. Stephens, Carleton Place
Hi Larry. I was extremely pleased with the work you did for me, moving all my information to my new computer. In retrospect, I wish I had sought your advice and input before purchasing my new computer -- it would have saved me a lot of money. Also, the frustration of being promised service by Best Buy and not receiving it. I hope this note will be used as a recommendation to other seniors who feel they need a new computer or repairs. Thank You Again.
Wayne Doherty, Kanata
Who to call? Who to call? When I recently realized my laptop was infected and would need a professional to clean it up, I checked for reputable Computer Repair Services on Kijiji. I chose Larry's ad and after reading the information available on his website, decided Larry was my guy. After an exchange of emails with him, he suggested his Remote Support service to get my laptop back in tip-top shape. A phone call, a few keystrokes, and an access code and Larry was able to *remotely* repair all the issues on my laptop.
It was very helpful to have Larry on the phone, while he was remotely clicking through all the problems and explaining to me what he was doing. Larry was courteous, knowledgeable, and reassured me my laptop would survive! I didn't have to wait days... he offered convenient same-day service and I didn't even have to leave my home. I would highly recommend Sabo Computer Repairs and definitely recommend Remote Support service if your problems lend themselves to this option. Larry is now on Speed Dial should I require his assistance in the future! Thank you Larry for promptly responding to me and for your excellent service!
Donna Frank, Carp
In our house, whenever a problem with our computer happens, the immediate response is "call Larry." We have relied on Larry Sabo's excellent service for the past several years, and he has never let us down. In fact, Larry has gone above and beyond what any customer could reasonably expect to resolve our problems. We had a particular problem with our home computer over a year ago -- one so complex that the manufacturer's "help desk" guy just said "oh oh" -- and that they couldn't fix it. Larry made several service calls, did research on his own time to find out more about the issues, and he found a way to fix the problem in his highly professional manner.
Larry is quick to respond, provides excellent advice -- always seeking a reasonable-cost solution and providing his honest opinion on the best approach. He is trustworthy beyond doubt -- in fact we have left him alone in our house to fix a problem on occasion, and have done so without a moment's hesitation. We would highly recommend Larry Sabo -- we all call him a wizard when it comes to fixing computers -- and he's on our speed dial. And he never lets us down.
Bill & Maureen Pentney, Nepean
I was very impressed with the quality and speed of service that I received from Larry at Sabo Computer Repairs. I had data that needed to be recovered from a frozen hard drive. Larry was able to recover the data that same evening and I had my lost files back by the next business day.
Maureen Hogan, Stittsville
I recently requested Larry Sabo to provide me with my IT support. He came highly recommended by a friend of mine who needs him for IT support as well. What impresses me is the quick responses to my problems. I am no longer waiting hours and even days to hear back from a specialist. He has also set me up on remote support and is able to do many things without having to come to my home. I can highly recommend him as well.
Marilyn Gill, Ottawa
We took our hard drive to Sabo Computer Repairs with 10-years-worth of family photos we thought were lost forever. Larry Sabo diagnosed the problem and had all of the files retrieved and copied to a new hard drive within hours. Truly knowledgeable and straight-up honest. We would definitely recommend Sabo Computers Repairs.
Luigi and Carol Della Penta, Ottawa
Larry is an outstanding IT professional and I don't know how I could get along without him. Readily available, completely trustworthy, efficient, patient, creative, cost effective, and most enjoyable to work with. Whether it is on site or remote, you will be completely satisfied.
Doug Cameron, Ottawa
I just want to say how impressed I was with the very fast and professional service received. I didn't give much notice and needed two computers fixed on a very tight schedule... and Larry delivered! I would highly recommend Larry.
I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Larry to solve some minor computer issues. His service and professionalism were second to none. He arrived at my home on time and proceeded to solve all my related issues. Based upon my experience, I would highly recommend Larry's services.
John Langley, Ottawa
At the recommendation of a friend, I had Larry fix my two computers for a very reasonable price. My main computer now boots up faster, shuts down quicker and doesn't just shut down for no apparent reason in the middle of a message, etc. He upgraded my virus protection and secured my wireless. There were many other technology things that he did which are beyond my expertise. My second computer took some work too. I am very pleased with Larry's expertise and professionalism. It would be my pleasure to recommend Larry to others needing computer repairs.
Alice Smeathers, Nepean
Just to let you know that the laptop is working just great. I would like to thank you once again for doing the repair for us. You most certainly have another customer. Your response to my concerns and questions was very prompt and gave great advice. I thank you for allowing me to do business with you and will in the future.
Ronald G. Vinet, Arnprior
We called Larry regarding our computer as we had had him previously and were so pleased with his service. He was just here yesterday, took our computer to his 'hospital' and returned it today all ship-shape and running so smoothly. We were having 2-3 difficulties with it and when we could not start it up...it was Larry time. We highly recommend his services.
Marilyn and Barclay Biggs, Kanata
Sabo Computer Repairs has saved me countless times from losing data and losing time. Larry Sabo is very competent and knowledgeable, and has answered my calls for help in record time. He has also installed a number of programs on my computer to facilitate the operation, and has recommended back-up strategies to me. He always gives that little extra that is so helpful. I would be happy to recommend the company to anyone who needs advice or repairs.
Madeline Kallio, Kanata
Larry has been a life-saver for my computer systems problems over the years and is always readily available to help. He takes the time to explain the problem and invariably solves the problems in a minimum period of time. A good sense of humour is essential in his business -- he has it, together with an infinite amount of patience.
Alex. Duncan, Kanata
For more than 6 years now, we have relied on Larry Sabo to save us from ourselves in terms of computer technology. Not being a particularly computer-oriented family, we have turned to Larry regularly for repairs, updates and the installation of new hardware and software, not to mention the tutoring that he has provided in terms of questions answered and explanations given. His ability to explain the technology in comprehensible terms to his clients is invaluable. He is very knowledgeable, professional and always returns calls quickly. We continue to rely on his excellent services and can recommend Sabo Computer Repairs to all without exception.
Maureen, Rob and Simon Vodrey, Stittsville
I've been using Sabo Computer Repairs for several years. Larry is very reliable and his service is top-notch. He is always courteous and has rushed over to my house at the last moment to help me out. Keep up the good work.
Michael Tonchin, Kanata
Larry Sabo has been fixing my computers for seven years now and I'm delighted with his services. He has been very responsive to my calls for help and gets things fixed quickly. I especially appreciate his ability to explain things in terms I understand, without a lot of gobbledygook. Larry is the expert I rely on to keep my computers running as they should and I'm pleased to commend him to you.
Dr. G. Paul Holtom, D.C., Stittsville
I have been a computer client of Larry's for over 5 years and have been extremely satisfied with the results -- Larry is very knowledgeable in his field and has not faced a problem of mine he could not solve. I have found that he responds to my phone calls ASAP and will often come to my place on short notice. On a scale of 1 to 10, Larry is a 10!
George Caplan, Kanata
I’ve had to call Larry Sabo to fix my computer on several occasions, usually coinciding with either the kids returning or leaving home for university. Each and every time Larry’s response was prompt, his demeanor was professional, his service was excellent, his charge was reasonable and, most importantly, my computer was fixed.
Tony Panetta, Barrhaven
Larry Sabo has always provided excellent, timely, prompt, courteous, honest and knowledgeable service/help. He has often provided extra help from home after his house visit to resolve a problem. I have complete confidence in his work and have no hesitation in recommending Larry.
Garry Fancy, Kanata
Larry Sabo has provided excellent computer support to us on several occasions. He is knowledgeable, efficient and reliable. He has helped us out on short notice and repaired/ updated our computers and software applications. Larry is very dependable and personable as well. You can count on him to keep your computer and e-mail systems running smoothly. The fact that he hails from Niagara (as we do) is an added bonus. Keep up the GREAT work Larry.
Phil & Mary Rocco, Stittsville
Larry, as you know I have been greatly helped over the years by your skill and professionalism and have great confidence in your work. I would recommend your service without reservation.

Larry is a very competent fixer. He is punctual, thorough and has a high level of integrity.
